Want to make comfy clothes you can wear every day? Need some help getting to grips with sewing stretchy knit fabrics?
Designed for home sewists who want to stretch their skills and expand their fabric repertoire, Stretch! contains a wealth of tips and tricks for choosing, cutting, fitting, handling and stitching stretchy knit fabrics, such as jersey, ponte, sweater knit, sweatshirt fleece, stretch velvet and sequin knits.
Tilly takes you step-by-step through making six gorgeous sewing patterns – included in the book on full scale printed sheets – with inspiration and instructions for customizing the projects to make them your own.
The book shows you how to sew all the projects on a regular sewing machine with an adjustable zigzag or stretch stitch. If you also have an overlocker or serger (not essential), you’ll also get a helpful introduction to threading it up perfectly, sewing seams and troubleshooting tips.
Stretch! will give you the skills, confidence and inspiration to make a wardrobe full of comfortable, wearable clothes that you’ll want to wear every day!
